I am going to jump right in here with my first post on my newly updated blog. Hope you guys love this outfit as much as I do!
Not once have I even driven a Harley - but this jacket makes you feel like you just need to go out and buy one right away. I am not one for wearing black but this embroidered moto jacket is the perfect statement piece that screams: "I AM A BAD ASS... WITH REALLY GOOD TASTE!" Sadly, it is not real leather but very good quality lined faux leather with gorgeous embroidery and studded detailing.
I saw this piece last March at the Halifax Urban Outfitters. There was only a size medium on the mannequin and it was way too broad in the shoulders for me, so I sadly left the jacket behind. In the following weeks that past, I occasionally checked the Urban Oufitters website looking for the jacket and my size was still available weeks later. I kept going back to it and finally - five months later, I decided that it had been long enough and after referencing the online sizing guide, I put the size small in my cart and checked out. I received the jacket a week later and I was sad to see the small was too big in the shoulders as well. Taking a risk with , I ordered the XS as well and compared the two. The XS fit perfectly across the shoulders and in the body but it was too small in the arms! After debating long and hard about what fit I wanted - I chose the smaller size in hopes the arms would stretch out. Usually I would opt for a bigger size if the arms were too small and uncomfortable but this jacket is meant to have a tailored fit and the bigger size felt like it was going to swallow me whole. Thankfully, after a few wears the arms did begin to loosen and I now have a great fit.
This is truly the coolest piece I own, and was really worth the splurge and hassle of return. I can definitely see myself wearing this piece for years to come.
I got so caught up in the jacket I almost forgot to tell you how much I love this bell sleeve top from Envy and my go to pair of Levis.
